Hamilton Township School District Issues Statement on COVID-19 Preparedness Plan


Currently, there are no reported, confirmed or presumptive cases of any individual or individuals that have tested positive for the COVID-19 Coronavirus residing here in Hamilton or Mercer County.

Recently it has been reported that a Cardiologist who works in Robbinsville, NJ, but lives in Burlington County has tested positive after traveling to Italy.

Local officials have been working around the clock to keep the public informed about current developments.

On Wednesday, Hamilton Township School District Superintendent Dr. Scott Rocco, issued a statement outlining a preparedness plan and indicated that the schools have enhanced cleaning and sanitizing facilities.

Within the schools, HTSD continues to implement an enhanced daily cleaning and sanitizing plan. This cleaning uses a combination of both mechanical and chemical cleaning phases that are focused on common touchpoints including doorknobs, sinks, water fountains, computer keyboards, student desks, chairs, cafeteria tables, chairs, etc. Additionally, we have deployed more hand sanitizer dispensers throughout our facilities in order to provide our students and staff with continuous access to disinfectants as needed.
